GONE HAYWIRE

Submitted Observing

Things are so out of whack recently that I think we have gone haywire. Let me just toss a few random disjointed thoughts out there to get a real real feel for where we are right now.

  1. Persons on bail for vicious murders…BUT…end up committing others after
  2. Local parties and fetes are restricted…BUT…visitors can plan 2 months ahead of time and party soon with wild abandon
  3. Large outcry over the Trojan Riddim…BUT…and even larger outcry over the outcry over the Trojan Riddim
  4. MAM says take down the Riddim AND apologise…BUT…so far 166 thousand views, 3000 likes and Sunday School still wukking
  5. NUPW elected to represent workers…BUT….NUPW has to call in the police to save itself
  6. Minister boasts that cruise ships coming…BUT…positive cases still showing up on liners abroad
  7. We say the children under severe pressure…BUT…we force the same children to do Common Entrance
  8. Auditor General report speaks of problems…BUT…not a peep or pang from the GoB or BLP about it
  9. Cruise ships mashup Carlisle Bay coral…BUT…Minister says no problem he will plant it back
  10. Road tax removed to supposedly ease consumers….BUT……gas prices (and said tax) increasing every single month
  11. Hotel workers cannot be forced to take the vaccine…BUT…guests can demand that they do
  12. There is no price gouging they say…BUT…ask any supermarket buyer and you’ll hear different
  13. Four Seasons money written off by government…BUT…the main lawyer and main adviser running the same government coffers currently
  14. Verla’s ready to lead the DLP to next year’s election…BUT…she has to beat a certain Guy first.

See what I tell ya. We Gone Haywire.

  • The justice system in Barbados is broken. Successive governments and CJs have tried all manner of things to help it along but in the blogmaster’s humble opinion the system is being sabotaged by officers of the court, namely some lawyers. Then there is the moribund BBA and Disciplinary Committee that act as supporting services. Until we make deep seated changes to how we dispense justice, it will continue us to limp along. This is the root issue.

    Funny how times change. My now deceased parents-in-law were Maritimers. The “poor” children in their day were recognised at school by eating various forms of lobster. They used to get caught in the fishing nets. They were considered junk catch. Even the lowly mackerel, which will bite at an unbaited hook, were more valuable.
    40yrs ago, I could buy a whole block of Anchor cheese much cheaper than any cheese in Canada. And it tasted better, or maybe I had learned to like the taste.

    A paradox of hypocrisy at its highest, indeed!

    How the hell can Barbados expect to beg and borrow foreign money in order to allow the pampered ones to live large as if it is business as usual?

    Let them continue to try to borrow foreign money as Bajans continue to import luxury vehicles to drive on decrepit roads while drinking stale water imported in plastic bottles and see what will be their eventual downfall.

    Jamaica 1980’s, here Barbados comes!

    Wouldn’t the vendors- who will soon be ensconced in their well-appointed stalls and looking forward to the economic activity generated by the multi-million US$ construction project less than 400 metres away- be most disappointed to see the failure of this Lighthouse to come to a ‘still stand’?

    After all. there is no Covid-19 ban on the Construction sector.

    And before there is ‘idle’ talk about the dismal future for investment in tourism projects because of Covid-19, just ask yourself what plans do the same Hyatt principals of the recently bought (and quickly demolished) Harlequin concrete structure have for that site in the heart of the already matured South Coast tourism belt.

    I said on BU a month or so ago that our economy /country has been set back at least 15 or 20 years because COVID had upended all the best case scenarios.
    At least one of the brainwashed apostles , came after me with his old weak response that the tourists will come back and he was certain the economy will recover.
    He of course went on with the fact that we bought buses, garbage trucks and the stench had left Worthing. He says that every two hours or so.
    These clowns at the very outset thought that the IMF was a magic wand, completely forgetting this was our third visit. I told them that the entire IMF program was based on some turnaround in fourteen years.Now , because of COVID , not Mia’s or anybody’s fault , we are in the Sharks guts.
    I was therefore not shocked today , to hear our Prime Mjnister say that the region’s economies , including ours, have been pushed back somewhere between 15 and 20 years because of the pandemic.
    Don’t forget that another brainwashed apostle had predicted that the recovery would be quick because the people who owned villas will be rushing into Barbados. I think he owns a villa because he oversees billion dollar projects. A very successful chap. I recently read an article about him in the Financial Times. A brilliant fellow.
    And if that stupidity was not enuff a third brainwashed apostle posited on BU that our sunshine was so much in demand that the tourists would abandon their countries and flock to Bridgetown to escape COVID. This was even before we had one vaccine in stock! There are clowns and then there are idiots. Clowns make kids happy. Idiots……,,,,,
    Perhaps now that their political master has spoken, they will shut to hell up
    and stop polluting the blog with a bundle of crap. The kind that smells.

    As a result, the metal frame of the old market structure is currently being removed.
    To facilitate this, no parking will be allowed in the precincts of the Fairchild Street Market, and as the project advances, adequate signage will be erected to restrict access and clearly demarcate the area.
    During the construction work, it will necessitate the movement of heavy duty traffic, and while the contractors will make every effort to ensure a safe system of work and to reduce the risk of any injury to life and property, it will be incumbent on all parties to remain vigilant during the upgrade.

  • $9m work on Cave from next month
    The $9 million development promised by the new operators of Harrison’s Cave should be completed “over the next six to eight months”, even as the St Thomas attraction reopens early next month.
    Chief executive officer of Chukka Caribbean Adventures, Marc Melville, said yesterday the COVID-19 pandemic had affected plans to construct a dry slide, a bridge over the gully, zip line and a challenge course – “four primary activities” the Jamaican company had said it would be adding to Barbados’ premier attraction to create the new Harrison’s Cave Eco Adventures Park.
    “From July all the way up to December we will be starting construction and completing construction on all of the elements in the plan,” he said, with a targeted January completion date.
    Chukka officially took over operations last December and at his first media briefing here the month before, Melville had announced the company would be developing the site into an adventure park offering a range of additional activities to cater to the fancy of a wider range of ages and interests, while the cave tour would remain the core feature.
    Received severance
    Back then, chairman of Caves of Barbados, Ralph Thorne QC, said 60 employees had received their severance, and had been invited to re-apply for their positions to Chukka. The Jamaican company was granted a 25-year lease and will pay the Barbados Government a management fee which would be determined according to the performance of the attraction.
    Earlier this month, Minister of Energy, Small Business and Entrepreneurship Kerrie Symmonds told the House of Assembly that Government had paid out close to $2.5 million in severance to the former employees. They were officially severed on October 31, 2020, with a severance bill of $2 411 409, part of an overall payment of $3 444 628, which included vacation pay.
    Meanwhile, a new logo encompassing the new image and original features was revealed at yesterday’s media conference at Courtyard by Marriott hotel when Melville also announced Chukka would be targeting a July 2 reopening to the public. Visitors will once again be able to take advantage of cave tours and other existing features, while the new elements undergo construction.
    He said Barbadians would be offered a reduced price for entry for the first two months, with no charge for one child under 12 accompanying an adult.
    Country manager of Chukka Barbados, Andrea Franklin, said about 26 members of staff who worked with the Caves of Barbados had secured employment with the Chukka operation, among a total of about 40 people earmarked to be part of the start-up team.
    She projected that the staff complement would move “to about 90 or 95 by the time the project is completed”.
    Staff engaged for the July 2 reopening are undergoing training. (GC)

  • William,

    If women and girls don’t wish to be slapped, then they should not slap.

    I have ONE code of behaviour for everybody.

    At primary school, my son eventually had to whoop a girl’s butt to get her off his case. She had her way for years. Finally she tripped him and kicked him in the butt as he tried to get up off the floor.

    Imagine, if you fight back you are wrong and if you complain to the teacher you are a wimp.

    In later life it continues. Men who were so raised suffer spousal abuse in silence.

    As for cussing, Bushie told me when I came that BU is a rumshop and not a Sunday School. So I am a woman in a rumshop. I am adaptable.

    When I think about it, I believe that cussing can be a release valve. Sure helps me when I stump my toe!

    This means “Barbados has been in the dark” UNDER SUCCESSIVE BLP and DLP administrations, because over the years, people have not only been addressing BOTH administrations’ failure to address their concerns, but they have also taken matters into their own hands to “put plans together to help those who have been affected,” whether it is as a result of natural disasters or ‘water woes.’

    I’m sure you’ll recall as far back as September 2016, when concerned Barbadians came together to assist communities in St. John, St. Joseph and St. Thomas, that were experiencing water shortages on a continuous basis……. and against the background of calls for then Minister David Estwick to resign over the obvious management inefficiencies at the Barbados Water Authority.

    2. I am aware that men suffer silent spousal and other abuse. The Black man is still to this day suffering all types of abuse. So much so that there are some sisters who don’t understand it. Progressive brothers and sisters know this is a major problem to overcome.
    3. My opinion about disrespecting women is just that. I’ve seen women disrespected and beaten for no reason at all. Some men are just abusive.
    I never said there aren’t abusive women.
    As @Lorenzo said to me , I maybe living in an “ ideal world” on this topic. I am quite happy being there. It’s how I was raised and believe me I rebelled against almost everything they thought me.
    However , I don’t cuss, hit or abuse women.
    And if any man hit any of my daughters he should hope the police get there first. I have given up friendships with men once I had proof they were hitting their females in relationships
    Like I said , I believe in equality but on this topic I stand firm.
    Men who are being abused should seek help . In many cases the ego and being “laughed at”prevents them from so doing.
    Same thing with women who get abused but don’t want others to know the hell they go through daily.

    My point is that NOBODY should put their hands on ANYBODY for no reason, be they male, female or somewhere in between.

    Of course, one slap does not excuse a beat down. That is excessive force which is, of course, illegal.

    #BTEditorial – Crop Over 2021 a gamble with too great a risk – by Barbados Today June 18, 2021
    The news that Government has decided to pull the plug completely on Crop Over 2021 comes as no surprise to us. And while Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office with responsibility for Culture, John King, told the media in April that there would definitely be a festival but one with a difference, we always had our doubts about the assertion.

    What was telling at the time the Minister made the comment was the country was still in the midst of battling community spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus which has claimed 47 lives in Barbados.

    In an Editorial headlined: We Welcome The New-look Crop Over But Let’s Be Cautious, which we published the day after his announcement, we cautioned Government that any attempt to have any form of the festival must take into account COVID-19 protocols.

    Given the unpredictability of the virus and the fact that the national festival is made up of mass events, there was no place for miscalculation or recklessness. The Minister also mentioned the national vaccination programme. But at the time, the country was having challenges securing vaccines.

    But we have had multiple examples that have taught us that no amount of planning or preparation can ready us for this pandemic. And while many believe that the vaccination programme will bring about some sort of miraculous change, that has not been this case.

    Only Tuesday, Royal Caribbean reported that the Odyssey of the Sea cruise ship which had 95 per cent of crew and passengers vaccinated, had recorded eight COVID-19 cases.

    So even vaccinated parties and fetes hold absolutely no guarantees.

    For the Crop Over lover, we understand that this is the second year you will be missing your favourite festival. For the entertainment players whose livelihoods depend on the sector, we get it. To the cultural practitioner, artiste, musician, vendor, craftsperson, dancer, we feel your angst. But, sadly, what this country faces is much bigger than any one person or sector.

    And let us not forget that while thousands of Bajans and Bajan Yankees ascend on Grand Kadooment making merry from the National Stadium to the Mighty Grynner Highway, and thousands more watch the spectacle, there are still thousands more who have little or no feeling towards the national festival.

    Should something unfortunate happen where COVID-19 numbers spike during a Crop Over Festival, those who care not one iota will shout the loudest in condemnation and, sadly, some of their mouthings would be justified.

    We fully understand and sympathise with those whose payday is generated through entertainment activity. But we also want to remind those “up in arms” over the decision that the entertainment sector is part of the whole. We ask entertainment players not to forget that when you are part of a team there are times you will be called upon to take one for the team. This is such a time.

    Ironically, on the same day that entertainers were venting their frustration about Government’s scrapping of the festival, Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley was speaking during the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) forum on Natural Disasters and Climate Change along with IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva. Mottley asked the IMF and other international lending agencies to give the region an ease. while explaining the Caribbean was hardest hit by the pandemic
